While I have sometimes criticized artists for being too cliche about their subject matter for their country songs, Craig Morgan has made a career out of writing songs that paint a portrait of life in small towns in the south and he does it well. Puts me in mind of visits to my relatives’ towns in Arkansas during the summertime growing up and a simpler time. This is what he’s known for and he does it right with strong vocals to go along with it. I love the pictures that he paints with his songs. They just make me feel good.
“More Trucks Than Cars” was written by Craig Morgan, Phil O’Donnell, and Craig Wiseman. It’s a solid effort–mid-to-uptempo, catchy, and mostly guitar-driven with some fiddle weaved in there. It will have you hitting the repeat button many times, I’m sure of that. Both contemporary AND traditional country music enthusiasts will enjoy this tune.
His label, Black River Entertainment, is certainly putting out some quality music with all of their artists on their label right now: Craig Morgan, Due West, Sarah Darling, and Glen Templeton. This is a young, strong roster that is starting to make some buzz in town, as they should be. I’m looking forward to hearing much more from all of them!
Rated 5 out of 5 stars.
